Sacramento Business Journal

Sutter Medical Center Sacramento is voluntarily closing its kidney transplant program to focus resources on heart services — which include the only cardiac transplant program in the Sacramento region — Sutter officials announced Thursday. The kidney program does about 30 transplants a year, a small number compared to other programs in Northern California. The UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, Sutter’s California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, UC San Francisco and Stanford University each perform more than 200 kidney transplants annually.
